First of all, I live with my Mother and Father. My Father(Alzheimer's) Mother(Dementia). My Father goes in and out of different behaviors. But the one that stands out, and creates the most problems, is his paranoid behaviors. One minute, I'm preparing his meal, he's courteous and thankful. Next minute, he's giving me these intimidating, fierce looks, telling my Mother," That animal, is going to kill me, so watch out for him." I try not to feed into that, and let my Mom calm him down, and reassure him. Am I doing the right thing? or do I need to confront the situation? He takes his medications most of the time, but there are times where he "cheeks" them, and throws them to the ground. When told that he needs to take his medications, he replies, " Those are poisonous!" Same behavior for drinks, and meals, at times. Most of the time he is compliant with meals and meds. How do I deal with these issues without escalating the situation, or getting into problems with my Mother?
